All a glitter...

Wednesday, June 16, 2010

Can you believe we are half way through the year... where does the time go? Having monthly assignments certainly does make dates come around very quickly and the Scrapville sketch is no exception.
For this months sketch sample I decided to tone everything down a bit... no quilling, no paper rolling, no doodling, no patterned paper... just a few tubs of glitter and my new Martha Stewart punches (love, love, love those punches)!
This pic was taken when my daughter met her new baby brother for the very first time and they shared their very first cuddles and kisses... awww! Now they spend their days tormenting each other... groan!
I love this large Martha Stewart daisy border punch so will probably be using it on everything soon! For the strips of glitter that I ran at the top and bottom of the layout I simply stuck down a strip of double sided tape and poured the glitter on.
This butterfly punch seems to be everywhere at the moment and I can understand why as it is just beautiful! A touch more glitter... I cut squares from a sheet of chipboard and then covered each square with more double sided tape and then poured on the glitter.
Glitter is now scattered in the cracks of our floor boards and sparkles away happily when the morning sun shines through the windows, the poor farmer even had a touch of glitter in his side-burn because he was asleep in the chair next to me when I was working... oops!
From farm to you...
